Teaser Tuesday - Lies That Bind


Lies That Bind

For Teaser Tuesday, I'm posting the opening sentences from Lies That Bind by Delinda McCann.

When I was a little girl I never ever said, "When I grow up I want to be the mistress of a world leader." It never entered my head.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away -- you don't want to ruin the book for others)
  • Share the title and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

  2. It would say a lot about someone who did grow up thinking that way, wouldn't it? I think my choice of books is as far from yours as can be this week: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

    1. You're right, Heather! But since I enjoy a variety of books, LITTLE WOMEN is among my favorites too.

  20. Delinda McCann, author of LIES THAT BIND, sent me the following message:

    Blogspot is still not letting me comment. Can you post a comment for me?

    First, thanks to Sandra for posting my opening paragraph of Lies That Bind on Teaser Tuesday. I loved everybody's comments. Heather, I'll admit that Lies That Bind has some warm scenes. Still, I think my heroine was as surprised as anyone at her situation.

  30. Sorry I'm late at getting in on this. I'm not reading right now (except for blogs)due to having a lot going on in my life. Your teaser was wonderful. I will share a teaser from my book thought.
    Lori thought to herself; You have two choices in life to exist in it or live it, she chose to LIVE IT".
